Good looking example of a real 1940 Ford Deluxe convertible. Solid
car from down south.
EXTERIOR: Clean steel body. It is an older paint job and there are
no problem areas showing- no bubbles or damage. The paint shows
very well, smooth and glossy. Up close you may find flaws. Extra
features include grill gaurd, wing tips on the bumpers, locking gas
cap, dual mirrors and dual spot lights. The wheels have Deluxe trim
and Firestone white walls. The black cloth convertible top is
excellent. It has maroon piping.

genuine leather upholstery is original. The door panels look like
they've been replaced. The dash area is nice. The temperature, oil
pressure and fuel gauges work. Speedo works. It has the correct
rubber mats in front with carpet in the back.

believed to be rebuilt. It runs smooth, the paint looks fresh,

is new. Upgraded to a 12 volt electrical system with a battery
disconnect. The generator is upgraded with alternator internals.

are painted nicely. The wiring looks real good. It has an electric
fan in front to help keep it cool.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: It has an original Ford script mat. The side
panels are in tact. It has a white wall and painted rim with deluxe
trim for a spare. Under the trunk lid is painted. The weather strip
